Publish Date: Apr. 29, 2022 Author: Jackie Publisher: EagleTec CNC Modify Date: Apr. 29, 2022

Both RichAuto DSP and Weihong NK105G2 are popular controllers for CNC router machines. The two controllers are very similar in operation and functionality. When users are looking at the options of their cnc router, they often make the comparison between them. And some users are confused when choosing between the two; they have no clear idea of the specific difference between the two and can't make a choice. Today, I'm here to share with you the specific differences between RichAuto DSP and the WEIHONG NK105G2 CNC controller. We believe that you would be able to make the right choice for your needs after reading this post. Okay, let's dive in.

Both are individual CNC controllers that don't need to work together with a computer. First, let's go through a table to see how they differ in specs.

Specification Difference

As seen from the above table, the two controllers have the following three differences in configuration.

• The processor is different.

• The memory is different.

• The I/O port quantity is different. With more I/O ports, WEIHONG NK105G2 offers users more possibilities.

Based on user feedback, let's look at the performance differences between the DSP cnc controller and WEIHONG NK105G2.

Performance Difference

The connection between the RichAuto handheld unit and the 50-pin data cable is a male-female connector. Therefore, after a long time of use, this part probably loosened, causing the CNC router table not to work correctly. At this point, the NK105G2 adopts an integrated design to avoid such failures. In addition, RichAuto DSP would have a white screen failure or system crash from time to time, while WEIHONG has no such problems for the time being.

Functional Differences

WEIHONG NK105G2 comes with a simulation function. Through the tool path analysis, the system automatically calculates the time required to complete the machining and the machining range of each axis. RichAuto DSP can also calculate machining time but cannot simulate the operation range of each axis of G code.


Cost Difference

NK105G2 is about $165 higher than RichAuto DSP. From a cost perspective, RichAuto A11 is more user-friendly.
